By Jeffrey C. Williams
The unheard of upward thrust and fall in silver's expense in the course of 1979-80 ended in fees of marketplace manipulation opposed to the quest brothers of Dallas, fees that ended in a long trial and a responsible verdict. during this e-book Jeffrey Williams, who was once knowledgeable witness within the real trial, specializes in the industrial research used on the trial, the connection of that evaluation to the legal professionals' arguments, and its effectiveness sooner than the jury. Manipulation on Trial attracts greatly appropriate classes from this crucial case. via a sequence of essays, it investigates the elusive definition of manipulation, the problems of studying statistical proof, the imprecision in calculating damages, and the risks brought whilst fiscal research enters complicated litigation.
